The place is on the main street of la fortuna. We ordered 2 night, and then we added one night. Everything was excellent, especially in relation to the cheap price. The brakefast was good too. We used the pool which was a really nice spot for the end of our days. Mario in the reception was very nice and helpful.

I like that the staff helped with my arrangements for my tours and next stops. I highly recommend this place for someone looking for value with services.

Visited for 2 nights, with no issues getting into town or picked up for tours. Pool was refreshing after a long day walking, and the fresh eggs for breakfast were delicious. Stay on the lookout for some beautiful birds!

We stayed two nights at Sierra and do not regret it. The rooms are a bit out-dated but they are quiet and good enough for a good night sleep. The pool area does settle in nicely and could even be used by us during the day after check out. All staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast could be slightly improved, especially given the cook does not speak much English. E.g. a small menu with what it is on offer would improve things a lot.

This place is not much to look at from the road but drive through the security gates and you will find a beautifully landscaped courtyard with an open air kitchen where breakfast is served. Ask for an upper room at the back for bored of Arenal Volcano. (Rooms 13, 14, 15 are best). The staff are mostly family and all are friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are great with typical Costa Rican egg, bean and rice dishes cooked fresh fir each person.

The beds are very comfortable and the back building is quiet. The pool is handy too. The place has many decorative lights for after dark making it quite romantic. The breakfast is filling - Tico style - with gallons of fresh brewed Costa Rican coffee!! Close to the downtown core but far enough out to be quiet. Around the pool in the morning having coffee and viewing the volcano - well, it is absolutely delightful!!

Nice clean hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. Great location, not to far out of town. Room clean and tidy, air con was a must. Breakfast was nice and basic, only down point was no hot water in bathroom sink - as I like a hot shave in the morning. Secure on site parking 👍

Upon trying to check in at the original hostel we booked we were told we had been moved to this location. I was really happy with this location, it’s walking distance to town and close to many attractions nearby. Our room was clean and the man at the front desk was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. I would stay here again.

Stayed here for three nights. We didn’t actually book here in the first place, but our original accommodation moved us here. Zero complaints - this place really worked out for us. The gentleman at the front desk was very welcoming & the room was clean. Excellent location in town. Breakfast was really good - eggs made to order & fresh fruit! Highly recommend this accommodation - will only be better when the pool is complete! Thank you for a great stay!
